New York Times article features Schmidt Ocean Institute

hi-slide-img_5802A front page New York Times article about the “personal, anti-bureaucratic, inspirational” world of modern science philanthropy features Schmidt Ocean Institute and founders Eric and Wendy Schmidt.

An accompanying online video also highlights the organization and includes highlights from an interview with Wendy Schmidt: “In marine science, often the funding is available but there’s no ship time…We can apply so much interesting technology to marine environments now…We’re at the beginning of what we need to understand about the living systems in the ocean… It’s our responsibility as philanthropists to get ahead of these issues when they’re trapped in politics.”
